Yayoi Kusama: White Infinity Nets.  Exhibition: London, Victoria Miro Gallery, 2013. 56 pages, with 26 colour illustrations.

The artist describes the paintings as visualisations of hallucinations and attributes their emergence to a single-minded compulsion to paint for hours without eating or sleeping. £25.00

98181Dessanay, Margherita:  Adriana Varejao – Polvo.  Exhibition: London, Victoria Miro Gallery, 2013. 46 pages, with 20 colour illustrations. Paperback. 22 x 28cms.  In this new series of paintings, Adrian Varejão (b.1964) explores the subject of interracial identity, looking to the way the Brazilian consensus has historically categorised people according to five groups of skin colour: white, black, red, yellow and brown. She draws attention to this system by inventing her own thirty-three tiered spectrum of oil paints, and uses them to depict a series of 11 self-portraits, ranging in tone from dark to light, in accordance with the seventeenth-century ‘casta’ painting tradition. £25.00
